2014 FEBRUARY

BORA GULARI (USA)

Nomination
Attention to detail was a major contributing factor when Bora Gulari won his second Moth world title in Hawaii last month… that and some brilliantly consistent sailing in challenging tactical conditions. Gulari was so determined to ensure every element of his Mach 2 Moth was as low drag as was humanly possible that he bought a 3D printer in order to make a multitude of slinky micro fairings

Yes, it’s that simple!’ – Charlie Ainsworth
